Firsts quotes by Graham Greene

I make one image - though 'make' is not the right word; I let, perhaps, an image be 'made' emotionally in me and then apply to it what intellectual & critical forces I possess - let it breed another, let that image contradict the first, make, of the third image bred out of the other two together, a fourth contradictory image, and let them all, within my imposed formal limits, conflict. - Author: Dylan Thomas
Firsts quotes by Dylan Thomas
#64. Henry, this isn't about us. I mean it is, but they don't define you by the button you wear. They define you by what you do, by what your actions say about you. And coming here, despite your parents, says a lot to them- and me. And they're Americans first. They don't see you as the enemy. They see you as a person. - Author: Jamie Ford
Firsts quotes by Jamie Ford

#70. After fifteen years of facing them (pitchers) you don't really get over them. They're devious. They're the only players in the game allowed to cheat. They throw illegal pitches and they sneak foreign substances on the ball. They can inflict pain whenever they wish. And, they're the only ones on the diamond who have high ground. That's symbolic. You know what they tell you in a war - 'take the high ground first.' - Author: Richie Ashburn
Firsts quotes by Richie Ashburn
#71. I first heard the term "meta-novel" at a writer's conference in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The idea is that even though each book in a series stands alone, when read collectively they form one big ongoing novel about the main character.

Firsts quotes by Carolyn Wheat

And it kind of just snowballed from there. - Author: Atticus Shaffer
Firsts quotes by Atticus Shaffer
#75. In my whole career, in fact, I can remember only two first nights when a show was at its peak on the first night. And I just wish we could devise a system where critics came not on a single evening but were given a choice of performances to attend. - Author: Richard McCabe
Firsts quotes by Richard McCabe
#76. The whole point of a sacrifice is that you give up something you never really wanted in the first place. People are doing it around you all the time. They give up their careers, say - or their beliefs - or sex. - Author: John Osborne
Firsts quotes by John Osborne
#77. The joy of 'Crash' was that it was all about the work. It was my first real part. Before that, it was a line here and there, maybe a scene. 'Crash' was five scenes, a beautiful arc, a little vignette of my own. It really meant something. - Author: Michael Pena
Firsts quotes by Michael Pena

Firsts quotes by Morris Raphael Cohen
#85. Twitter, Reddit, Tumblr, Instagram, all these companies are businesses first, but, as a close second, they're demographers of unprecedented reach, thoroughness, and importance. Practically as an accident, digital data can now show us how we fight, how we love, how we age, who we are, and how we're changing. All we have to do is look: - Author: Christian Rudder
Firsts quotes by Christian Rudder
#86. When I first came into this world, Elvis was already fat. - Author: Jane Wagner

Firsts quotes by Rob Brydon
#92. Hence, a generative grammar must be a system of rules that can iterate to generate an indefinitely large number of structures. This system of rules can be analyzed into the three major components of a generative grammar: the syntactic, phonological, and semantic components ... the syntactic component of a grammar must specify, for each sentence, a deep structure that determines its semantic interpretation and a surface structure that determines its phonetic interpretation. The first of these is interpreted by the semantic component; the second, by the phonological component. - Author: Noam Chomsky
Firsts quotes by Noam Chomsky
#93. The first time I made myself up, I was looking at my reflection in the mirror and it wasn't me looking back. It allowed me to do things I couldn't do as myself. I found out how powerful that was and how much that can mean to an actor. - Author: Rick Baker

Firsts quotes by Brian Gordon
#95. The first day's always the hardest, because it moves so much faster than a film does and once you get into that rhythm, though, you feel like you've accomplished so much in such a short period of time, so there a bit of comfort in that. You just have to find your rhythm. - Author: Jaimie Alexander
Firsts quotes by Jaimie Alexander
#96. Generally speaking, I am not interested in the future and don't believe in it. First, I guess it is true that I don't trust the future, but, more to the point, I don't even trust the "myself" of tomorrow, nor, for that matter, of the day after. Basically, all I know, and all I am capable of understanding, is the "me" that is here, now, the "me" that has dragged his past with him to this point. - Author: Yohji Yamamoto
Firsts quotes by Yohji Yamamoto

Firsts quotes by Ben Okri
#98. I remember being cast in the first "Harry Potter" film and being quite amused, because I was imagining that someone who'd been acting since they'd been crawling would be cast. The faith and trust that they'd put into everyone actually enabled you to gain confidence back, in the sense of feeling that sense of achievement, which is incredibly hard when you're young. - Author: Bonnie Wright
Firsts quotes by Bonnie Wright

#104. Man mind yoursel is the first commandment. - Author: James Hogg
Firsts quotes by James Hogg
#105. The mere existence of an additional child or children in the family could signify Less. Less time alone with parents. Less attention for hurts and disappointments.

Or better still, all. - Author: Adele Faber
Firsts quotes by Adele Faber

'To save me all your firsts, - Author: L.J. Shen
Firsts quotes by L.J. Shen
#111. I guess most of us would rather not discuss cancer because we are all afraid we might be told we have it. It's hard for people to even say the word, and that's the first obstacle you have to overcome when you are diagnosed with the disease. I think once you understand a little more about it ... I don't mean it gets any easier ... but I think you give it more in-depth thought about how you're going to deal with it. - Author: Arnold Palmer
Firsts quotes by Arnold Palmer

#113. When anything is wrong with your child, your first instinct is to make it better. - Author: Didi Conn
Firsts quotes by Didi Conn
#114. In a very real sense my science does inform my knowledge of God. If you would allow me to say that we never know God, because if I claim that I know God, I know something other than God, because God is not knowable, he is unknowable. So we have to approach it in that sense first, that my knowledge of God is always limited. - Author: George Coyne
Firsts quotes by George Coyne

Firsts quotes by Ken Jennings
#119. The first step in wisdom is to know the things themselves; this notion consists in having a true idea of the objects; objects are distinguished and known by classifying them methodically and giving them appropriate names.

Firsts quotes by Jandy Nelson
#127. A man perfects himself by working. Foul jungles are cleared away, fair seed-fields rise instead, and stately cities; and with the man himself first ceases to be a jungle, and foul unwholesome desert thereby. The man is now a man. - Author: Thomas Carlyle
Firsts quotes by Thomas Carlyle

I belong to the beloved, have seen the two worlds as one and that one call to and know, first, last, outer, inner, only that breath breathing human being. - Author: Rumi
Firsts quotes by Rumi

#159. Nobody hopped into a wardrobe to find Narnia; they hopped in, thinking it was just a wardrobe. They didn't climb up the Faraway Tree, knowing it was a Faraway Tree; they thought it was just a really big tree.

That's what shooting a chase is like. - Author: William Friedkin
